PMP Certification is one of the most worthwhile and lucrative and is globally recognized.

While the exam isn’t a cakewalk by any means, it is certainly an obtainable certification if you put in the time and effort.

It takes approx 6-8 weeks of time for a working professional to prepare for the exam. 

Below is the diagrammatic representation of the estimated timeline.

PMP® Exam Syllabus:

  • The syllabus for PMP® certification is based on PMBOK (Project Management Body Of Knowledge)® Guide. 

  • According to the PMBOK® Guide, the PMP® exam syllabus is built surrounding various process groups and knowledge areas.

For tips & tricks to clear PMP Exam, have a look at  https://www.edureka.co/blog/pmp-exam-prep/

As you can see from the diagram, the Planning, Executing and Monitoring phases together covers more than 80% of the syllabus

Before you apply for the Project Management Professional® Certification (PMP) exam, it is advised to take up a training course.

These training courses are excellent for helping you understand the various parameters and requirements of different types of projects.

I hope this will be helpful, good luck.
